Ah yes, the very unloved blog. I've finished working for now but still never seem to have time for it! I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with the local experts!

Hi Andrew, thank you :)

I will be making a couple of your lady beetle nesting houses tomorrow!

That was so useful. I see there are some lady beetles in my garden (since the rain) and would love them to stay a while.

Cheers, Bobbie

Thanks Andrew,

I appreciate the welcome and looking forward to connecting with other gardeners as I've only been living in Brisbane a year and am really glad to have found your site.

 Hi Andrew thank you for the welcome.  I just watched the video tour of your garden after the recent rain, what a difference some rain makes!!

Andrew, thank-you for the welcome.

What a wonderful group. If I ever get to Brisbane, I'll have to come to some events... and I received a link today about Brisbane LETS.. so exciting... I must see if there is one on the coast here.

So hello everyone! happy growing!..

lots of cherry tomatoes, pumpkin and herbs in my garden. I have about an acre of lemongrass running rampant if anyone would like some or all of it.

bye for now and again

Enjoy all regards, Janine
